There is practical information and tips on dealing with important day-to-day topics, like acne, sunburns, athlete’s foot, eating right, and staying fit. There is straightforward talk on sensitive hard-to-discuss subjects, likepuberty, wet dreams, and bedwetting. And, there is no-nonsense advice on smoking, alcohol, and drugs. This guide is a valuable source of information for young men as they grow and take responsibility for the care and health of their bodies.
